PCYS Announces the "Volunteer of the Quarter" Congratulations to Shawn Chiusano, the Payne County Youth Services "Volunteer of the Quarter" for October through December 2011. Shawn donated 54.25 hours of his time during this time period. Shawn started volun- teering on April 1,2011, but had donated goods and money prior to that time. Before coming to Stillwater, he was involved with donations and volunteering at some places in Lawton, includ- ing their youth shelter. When asked what moti- vated him to begin vol- unteering with the youth, Shawn commented, "I believe a simple kind- ness can alter someone's life. Anyone can donate goods and money, but showing kindness takes an actual human con- nection. Anyone can do it withopt any special talents or abilities. You don't have to be the disciplinarian or parent, you're there to simply show them that they are a valuable person and they have intrinsic worth that goes far beyond the circumstances they have come from." Shawn interacts with the youth through play- mg pool. hands-on arts activities, outside activi- ties (throwing a ball. fris- bie, soccer, roller blad- ing, basketball, football, tag), watching tv, just to name a few.
